Our Day Home

A little while back I had the pleasure of spending the day at home with Ryan. She wasn’t able to go to daycare and Susan still had to go to work, so I took the day off and got to hang-out with my little girl. I thought I’d share some of the day with you.

First thing we did was get up and get dressed and head into the living room to play after we got Susan off to work.

What do you mean you need to watch over me? I've got everything I need here. See.

After rolling around and playing with toys and listening to glow worm we decided to read.

Some people have a thinking cap, Ryan has a reading cap.

All that fun was a lot of work as so it was time for a nap. I was able to catch a little shut-eye myself, which was rather nice.

Her Holiness the Dali Napa says that all life is grumpiness unless one awakens from their nap.

After our nap and lunch we went back to playing, and we had a surprise guest join us.

What? A surprise play guest? And me caught with this cup my my mouth. What can I say, I'm speechless.

That’s right, it was Bella. She came down from her nap spot and got really interested in Ryan’s toys. Bella was so interested in fact I had to take the a couple of toys away from the cat several times. Of course it didn’t help that Ryan kept giving her toys to Bella. She thought Bella was the most interesting thing, and couldn’t get enough of the cat. It was really cute to watch.

Ryan says, "Here Bella you have this toy. Don't let that Daddy person stop us from doing what we want, and I want you to have it."

Shortly after all this fun Susan got home from work and we all fell into our regular afternoon/early evening routines.

With that said, I must say this was one of the most exciting and fun days I’ve ever had in my life. It was so great to be able to spend time with Ryan, just the two of us. It was a real bonding moment for both of us and made me realize on a gut level, and not just an intellectual level, how important it is to the adults, not just the kids, for parents and their children to spend time together. That’s all for now, as I’m off to spend time with my wonderful family.
